If your home or business sits in a recessed area with the septic tank and drain field at a higher elevation, you likely have a lift station. Lift stations provide the power needed to move waste material from your drains and into the septic system, where it can be processed.
Quality Septic of Brandon repairs and installs lift stations to ensure that septic systems run efficiently and safely. Here’s how we can help you with this important septic component.
How Lift Stations Become Damaged
Lift stations operate in a fairly corrosive environment. When maintained correctly by experienced septic technicians, your lift station will work efficiently.
If maintenance is neglected, a variety of problems can occur with the control panel, float, pump and other parts. When a lift station fails, raw sewage can no longer be moved up and away from your home.
Signs of Lift Station Malfunction
Watch for these signs that tell you there may be a problem with the lift station at your Brandon home or business.
- Drains running slowly or backing up
- Toilets backing up and overflowing
- Strong smell of sewage indoors or outdoors
- Damp sections of ground near the septic system
- Lush grass growing in the vicinity of the septic tank or drain field
Keep in mind that the lift station in your Brandon septic system isn’t the only possible cause of the signs listed above. There could be a failure within your septic tank, the drain field, the piping that channels waste, or another part of your system.
Lift Station Inspections
It’s impossible to know exactly what’s happening with a lift station until we inspect it. Never allow a septic company to begin lift station repairs or installation until a proper inspection has been completed. As noted above, the problem you’re having may have nothing to do with the lift station.
A licensed septic inspection will tell us exactly what’s causing the problem, where the trouble is centered and how extensive the issue is. Only then can the right repair or installation work be started.
